I have a friend who would like to volunteer, can they help?

YES! We always need an extra set of hands! Email support@idaph.net and we will get you connected!

How do I cancel my registration?

Above all else, we are striving to make this event as safe as it can possibly be for all our participants, volunteers, and staff. If you’re feeling unwell (or uncomfortable participating), we want you to be able to stay home and join us next year without feeling like you’re losing out. In order to make that happen, we are allowing everyone to transfer their registration to the virtual event at any point before the start of the race. In the virtual event, you’ll run anywhere you like, post your results, and have your swag mailed to you after the event. Transfers during the week of the event will cost $10 (starting Monday, October 3rd)

REFUNDS: We have a small, but mighty team that is working on all the details to produce this event safe for you and everyone in our community in attendance. We are incurring the expenses for production well before the day of the event, and we will not be able to provide a refund to you should you want to cancel your registration, or if the event itself has to be cancelled due to the pandemic, weather, or an act of god.

TRANSFERS: All participants can transfer into the virtual version of their event up until the day of the event. Email support@idaph.net for instructions on how to transfer. There will be no refunds for the price difference between events. Transfers during the week of the event will cost $10 (starting Monday, October 3rd)

CANCELLATION: As we all know the pandemic changes things quickly! We ask that you be flexible and patient as we may have to adjust things for this event up until the event takes place. In the event that the U.S. or NC government declares a new stay-at-home order or places new restrictions on gatherings and we are not able to have the in person event, all in-person event registrations will automatically be converted to the virtual event. If it gets switched to a virtual event, you will have your swag mailed to you for free.
